This romantic/drama stars Julie Delpy and Chris Rock, and tells the story of a happily married couple whose relationship is tested after the wife’s family moves in for a few days and live in their tiny New York apartment. I actually found the movie more interesting and witty than I initially expected, especially coming from Chris Rock. The fact that it was directed by Julie Delpy, as well, definitely helped the overall atmosphere and mood of the film. But, I did also find the movie really cheesy and comical at times which I don’t think was intended. I would rate this movie 3.5/5 stars.

Goofy. Characters were caricatures.

This movie was funny at first but the eccentric characters rubbed me the wrong way. I really was annoyed by Julie Delpy's character, Marion, and wanted her to get a grip. It's a comedy but this movie is not enjoyable for someone who likes structure, order and normal people like myself.

This is by far the worst movie I have seen in a long, long time. It makes an Adam Sandler flick seem Oscar-worthy in comparison.

A wonderful clash of two cultures! Brilliant characters and dialog. If you like "Before Sunrise" or "Before Sunset" you will love this movie.

Previews were definitely the best part of this film. It was totally unrealistic, I couldn't identify with any of the characters. The portrayal of the family from France was so awful I would think that French (and French-descended) people all over would be up in arms about the insults to their heritage. If this is supposed to be comedy, it's not the kind I enjoy.

This film may not be for everyone, but I tend to like my comedy a bit darker than most. I love Julie Delpy. I think she is an accomplished writer and actress and proves her talent here as well. I like the 1st one a bit better, but she exposes some uncomfortable truths about family dysfunctions and most importantly and uniquely - in my opinion - the way women are perceived in an array of unflattering light. Her emotional outbursts are frequently seen by the more paternalistic characters as a flaw, which given the circumstances of those outburst are perfectly logical reactions to awful behavior. I think if this had been written by Woody Allen it would have been received better. I am glad she's writing - we need more women doing so.

This is one of those movies where I felt my life ticking away. The acting was fine, but the writing is too crudely juvenile for the characters. I suffered through halfway and gladly gave up, not caring the least bit how it ends. Recommended for insomniacs.

Painfully trying to be funny and succeeded only in painfully trying. May be if the manic cadence of the on slaughter of over the top screwball scenes were dialed down ... but then, audiences would see through the absurdity too easily.

Marion and Mingus, a Manhattan apartment occupying professional couple, each with a child from a prior partner, encounter a brief two-day visit from Marion's relatives from France: Her quixotic father, insouciant sister, and, unexpectedly, the sister's shuddersome boyfriend -- who we find out is one of Marion's past flames. In an ideal world, the hilarity would ensue. This film? Not so much.
